+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1367551 +++
For bug 1367551, we changed behavior for rc-manager=symlink setting upstream:
This change will also go to rhel-7.4.
This bug is only as a marker to fill a proper changelog, and possibly add some testing for it.
The change is suitable for rhel-7.4 because:
- the default on rhel7 is rc-manager=file. So, this likely does not affect many users.
- the new behavior makes much more sense, the difference comes into play when
- if somebody has rc-manager=symlink
- /etc/resolv.conf is a regular file or missing
Previously, NM would have replaced /etc/resolv.conf with a symlink to /var/run/NetworkManager/resolv.conf. Now, instead NM will write resolv.conf as a regular file. A user who intentionally chooses rc-manager=symlink likely already replaced /etc/resolv.conf with a symlink (which is the main use of this mode).
